The President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) Most Rev. Jacques Berthelet, C.S.V., on behalf of the episcopal conference’s Permanent Council, will make public a pastoral message on marriage in light of the current debate surrounding the proposed government legislation on the redefinition of marriage.

The pastoral message will be released at a national media conference that will take place Wednesday, September 10, 2003, at 10:30 AM at the Grand Séminaire de Montréal, 2065, Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal.

The CCCB Permanent Council will be represented by three spokespersons:

  • Bishop Jacques Berthelet, C.S.V., Bishop of Saint Jean-Longueuil and President of the CCCB
  • Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte, Archbishop of Montreal
  • Cardinal Aloysius Ambrozic, Archbishop of Toronto

The Pastoral Message will be available on the CCCB website immediately following the Wednesday Media Conference.
